Indeed, all the posts are great! Hue, you didn't disappoint me, you did an outstanding post, and I can't wait to see how you develop it. Swordsman, I saw how you gave a cue for my character. I shall try to think up a post. I've been working a lot of overtime lately, and I haven't been able to be here as much as I'd like. And I've got to figure out what the message is that Meneldor is delivering.

I'll have something by this weekend, but right now I'm stuck. :bookworm:

Don't worry. It's not your fault. Muses just dry up now and then. I'll think of something. :) I'm really glad to have somebody to interact with so soon.

Well, I finally figured out what the message was. Nothing earth-shattering this time, but it was something. I'm really enjoying this. Swordsman, please don't think I was ignoring Arahol. He was speaking to Eomer, but will respond when Arahol speaks. I'll leave it up to you if they're friends and not merely acquaintances. :wink:

In my haste and probable impatience, I may have missed the final solution to the "bad guy problem" with Hades and how that's all being handled. I know you're full at the moment, but if ya still want someone to post your Mordanian (sp?) character, just let me know. I'd love to hop into this mix of old friends and new faces. I seem to have a bit of a thing for writing on the dark side lately:

and

http://forums.theonering.com/viewtopic.php?p=3660966#3660966


And I since I'm having so much fun writing nasssstiness, I'd love to continue it here. Just say the word.

By the way, I'd like to chime in on the "Nin is an amazing RPer" discussion. I used to participate in a couple of those stories with her in the "blessed days." She's top-drawer to be sure.

Well, if I have a say in this I think it would be a good thing to have someone to write Mordarias, especially someone with a knack for writing evilnesss.

Once more in style (I thought it more convincing in this skin) and to tell that SB is (now, don't be angry, Hue) better than me and Hue together.

He won the RP award one day...

But it is your RP, Amethyst and if you say full, it's full.

WARNING!! "Awe shucks" humility ahead, prepare to roll eyes.

:roll:

Seriously though, the only WCA I've ever won was 2002 newbie of the year. I've been nominated a few times, but people like Bardy, Hue, and Scribbler keep beating me out. Always a bridesmaid...

I appreciate the kind words, folks. I do make a whole-hearted attempt to spin a decent yarn. But I'm certainly not THAT good.

Amythest, sorry if it seems like I tried to bully myself in. I actually came here to read a little of Andalion's stuff, as he's petitioned to join the MK's. I liked the story so much, I opened my mouth in public when I should have email you about it off-boards.

Nin, I'd love to play :lightening: on your side. :evilaugh:

Oh, and Hue I'm only the "Boss" of the one little RP. Not that I don't enjoy the nickname, but I don't think TORC could handle two :cavetroll: Egos!


That may be the most emoticons I've ever put in one post.

:D

I'd LOVE to have you in. Bane, not to sound creepy, but I have read alot of your posts - just because. :) If there is anyone would I'd want to play Mordarias, it'd be you. :) SO. Yes, please, I beg, really. =]

A party it shall be!
:drink:

But if you would, email me about the details. I already have a few things that I wish to happen, or at elast be a part of his whole... persona. For lack of a better word.

=]
Everyone's doing great! I'll try to put up my next post soon.

No need to beg. I live for telling stories. I kinda figure you have some info for me on him. Email coming.


Hue, a "Highlander" reference, I love it.

EDITED TO ADD: I think I can put a small post together that'll go along with Hades'.

However, Nin, would you mind editing out the references to a crowd in Hades' and Mordarius' conversation. Maybe a person (slave?) or two only. It will make more sense when I get a profile up on the fiendish leader of the nassssssties.

Okay, this time I'm just gonna pull an erinhue and reply to myself.

I'd like ot ask for one more edit, please, from Hades' post. Obviously, after our whispered conversation, Hades would no longer think that Mordarius really wants to bring the eye back. So the reference to that at the end of the post should be edited out.

Sorry to be such a pain. Regretting the decision to let me in yet?

I promise it's only because I came in to the story late. I won't ask for such things in the future if I can help it.

PS, Amethyst, I hope it doesn't appear that I've strayed too far from your ideas for Mordarius. I just wanted to add a little more depth. I'll still await your email with that profile you have for him, and then I will spell out some of my ideas to you off-board. (don't want to give too much away, half the fun of RP is the surprise of what's gonn happen next.

SB, does the editing suit you? In your interest I hope so.

Do not forget, that requesting Hades to edit is done at your own risk and peril. If you are willing to enter discussion or open exchange of hostilities, name your preferred thread and weapon and my Darkling is yours. ;)

Maybe SB, do not forget that Hades writer is more accesible than her creature, like for instance under her yahoo ID of norniel ;);).

Goes off to breed more evilness.

psssssssssssssst. raises hand. wants to watch and participate


Sorry AJ for tripping into your, what I fear will be, a winning RP on TORC. Congrats on attracting some top notch players. I wish I would have replied sooner. Not to worry, I will enjoy the reading. Besides you have your hands full as it is with keeping these players in line. *zips lip*

I WILL be reading every word.

EDIT: Great post, SB, though Mordarius really does want Sauron to return, even f he knows he can't. Mordarius feels that theer is another, more powerful out there, not himself, but he is willing to find it. An email is on the way... =]

Oh, AJ, the denial can be full rethoric to convince Hades to go out and look for.... well I think you know for whom ;)

rwhen... I saw you applied in Isles of Ice too, so I hope it won't be too late one of these days for some other RP if you want to participate... anyway, I don't really know where to catch you, but I think I might be around for some more play... one of these days.

Sorry to trip things up a bit with my post before I discussed it with you all. I was just so excited after reading the thread so far...

Nin, the edits are fine. They'll help leave things a bit more ambiguous, which is how I want Mordorius to be viewed at the moment, anyway. More mysterious than concrete.

Therefore, I will not discuss his details in this thread. I'll confer with AJ, for now, at least until I get a feel for the character, and with Nin, my only ally (for now) via email.

I will get a profile up in this thread, however, I thought it might be interesting to post it as the myth, legend, whispers, and rumors that the general population knows, or thinks it knows, about ol' Dar.

I promise, I won't always be this much of a pain. This is the first time I've tried to write a character that wasn't my own. It's extremely difficult. There is even a part of me that doubts it can be done. Work with me here and I'll try to be more patient, too.

Ah I just love the smell of RP in the mornining, smells like a WC award :twisted:

I am a bit busy the rest of the week but I'll get a post up soon. Leander and friends will be on the move although I am not sure where to go I thought AJ's character was coming to Lorien but we might get moving to Rohan. I just got ants in m'pants and Im ready ta dance here or in another thread that shall remain nameless for the moment 8) Been a long time since I wrote in a fresh thread so any help or hints would be appreciated until I get the camera rolling.

OH WOW. I jsut realized what I did. ^_^ I'm so sorry. I didn't even realize that I started in Lorien. Aghhh. Well, I guess I'll just have ot start where I'm at. ^_^ Sorry guys. Totally my fault on that one. What if Leander followed Oriana out of the forest after her exchange with her father? That could cause hostility, if that's what we want. :twisted:

Just sayin. :twisted: But it's all up to you. =]

OK that works for me. Leander and friends will learn that Oriana has set out and will try to catch up with her for her own good. She can take that whatever way she likes.

It'll be a while before Meneldor meets Leander, but he'll recoginze his old acquantance when he meets him. :) :angel:

Ah, just a quick question to Andal, AJ and Lith. Seeing as you guys are outside of the town where I've lodged my gal, just wondering if you have plans to camp by the river or if you're going to come into town? Just so I know how to write the meeting that is bound to occur... Faril is most likely going to move on come morning, so she's bound to come your way anyhow. Ah, can't wait for the snarky "get away, this is none of your business" act that she'll play out :P I'm going to have to think of some more or less plausible reason for her to stick around with the group though, her not being the most sociable person in the world...*plotting*

A profile based upon what the general public knows about Mordarias:

Name: Mordarias (we've settled on this spelling)

Date of Birth: unknown, said to be anywhere from 150-4000 years
Gender: widely held to be male
Race: unknown, rumors say Elvish mostly, but some believe he may be Istari or Maiar
Marital Status: Unknown
Occupation: Leader of the notorious faction Wynter's Rose
Alliance: Mordor

Appearance: The legends say that he can appear fair when he wishes. Some whisper that he is a ghost or a wraith, appearing as mist or shadow. It is generally accepted that once he reveals his true self to someone, they do not live to tell the tale.

Personality: Murderous, ruthless, without scruple or compassion.

Weapons: A loyal band of secretive followers willing to kill or die for him. They could be anyone: your neighbor, a king's esquire, the farmer, the innkeeper. They are trained to withstand torture to the point of death and beyond without revealing themselves or their comrades.

It is rumoured that a sword of gleaming magnificence with a sculpted fist holding a giant ruby for a pommel hangs at his side. They say that if it be unsheathed, Mordarias will not put it away unless it has tasted blood.

History: The general consensus is that Mordarias was a high-ranking lieutenant within Barad-dûr, where he became powerful in mind, body, and soul. It is widely held that he learned many secrets from the Eye itself. (This particular bit about him is true, Mordarias having leaked it himself. However, since talk of him is tantamount to a ghost story told around a campfire to frighten children, many discount it as well.)
